Following the latest closures of their charity shops, LOROS Hospice now estimates a loss of £2.3million in fundraised income this year. Reliant on this income to deliver end-of-life care to terminally ill patients and their families, the charity has been incredibly resourceful – thinking of creative ways to encourage more businesses to get behind them this Christmas.
Without an office Christmas Party to look forward to this year, we got to thinking… how can we bring our people together, spend some quality time together (virtually), and do a good thing for someone else this Christmas?
The answer? We decided to sponsor LOROS Hospice’s latest campaign, Make Christmas your Business, designed to encourage businesses across the UK to bring their teams together for a ‘stay at home’ event like no other, and raise vital funds for LOROS Hospice at the same time.
The good news is that LOROS have done all of the hard work for you, coming up with some fantastic event ideas to host with your team to make organising a get together even easier. In fact, LOROS have included our event idea too – a cocktail making evening that comes thoroughly recommended by all of the team at Welcomm.
“Honestly, what the team at Welcomm are doing at the moment means the absolute world to us. It’s a tougher time than ever at the hospice as we face an estimated £2.3million loss in our fundraised income this year, so all the support we can get from your amazing team is very much appreciated both on a personal level and indeed by everyone at LOROS.
You guys really are awesome and your fundraising is such a showcase for what can be done if people are determined and passionate about what they do! You’re a credit to each other – thank you all very much.”
Our team activity was a really fun evening, and managed to raise £420 for LOROS in just one night! So give your staff the gift of time together this Christmas, by hosting your own Christmas Cocktail Hour.
Hosted via Microsoft Teams, our people had such a fun time dressing up, having a giggle and demonstrating their favourite cocktails over video call. Take a look at the video below to see our event in full swing!
